Capacity development and learning

Raising awareness of the relevance and importance of gender transformative approaches is a key component of the JP GTA. Through partnerships, peer-to-peer learning, knowledge exchange events, a resource hub, communities of practice and regular communications, the JP GTA seeks to build capacities at different levels, sharing learnings and tools to facilitate the uptake of such approaches.

Its target audiences include the employees of the UN Rome-based Agencies (RBAs) - FAO, IFAD and WFP -, as well as project staff and implementing partners, development practitioners, thematic specialists, policy-makers, government institutions, civil society organizations and other stakeholders at global, regional, national and local levels.

In the framework of the JP GTA, the RBAs organize internal workshops to promote the learning of topics related to gender transformative approaches among staff members and partners at both headquarters and country-level in Ecuador and Malawi. These events offer a space for interactive discussions and brainstorming about key concepts and modalities for gender transformative interventions, also serving to identify knowledge gaps and respective learning priorities.

In addition, outreach and knowledge sharing activities serve to reinforce synergies and strengthen the collaboration among the RBAs, while enhancing the Programme’s visibility more broadly.
